Defence Secretary outlines responsibility of public servants

Sep 22, 2011 11:16:43 AM - itnnews.lk

Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa has said that that the employees should not be confined to fulfilling their duties alone.

Only then the country can be steered to become the wonder of Asia. He said that once he saw a newspaper article which connected him to garbage disposal. He said if some service can be rendered by disposing of garbage, it has to be done as it is the duty of a public servant. They should be committed to serve the people, country and religion in any possible way.

The Defence Secretary made these comments at a religious function held at Sri Sirimuni Vihare in Kandewatta, Payagala to offer the newly constructed facilities to the Maha Sangha. The Defence Secretary also inaugurated a computer training centre at the temple. Deputy Minister Rohitha Abeygunawardena and Parliamentarian J.R.P. Suriapperuma were amongst those who participated in the occasion.
